DRAG WEEK RECORD BROKEN - LARRY LARSON RUNS A 6.95 AT 209.10 MPH
The 2010 Hot Rod Drag Week is over and it was the best ever! To end the week of competition, Larry Larson threw everything he had at breaking into the 6's on what turned out to be the final run of the night. Here is the first video to show that very run! There's an on board view and an awesome super slo-mo to get a great look at the fire breathing Chevy II that Larry wheeled to a Drag Week record of 6.95. We had two street driven cars run over 200 MPH in the quarter mile, Larry in his Chevy II and Jeff Lutz in his 57 Chevy and both cars survived the grueling 1000 mile drive as well!
HOT ROD Drag Week 2011, The Whole Story
HOT ROD Drag Week is the event that takes street racers to five races at
four drag strips in five days, and the cars are required to drive on the
highway from track to track with no support vehicles. In 2011, Drag Week
went 1,260 mile from Topeka, Kansas, to Great Bend, Kansas; Amarillo,
Texas; Tulsa, Oklahoma; and back to Topeka. Look for other videos on the
HOT ROD YouTube channel, and see the full story in the January and February
2012 issues of HOT ROD magazine.
Hot Rod Corvette Hack - The Long Version
This is the video version of the Corvette Hack story that appeared in the
Nov. '10 issue of Hot Rod magazine. You'll see the Hot Rod staff shred an
'85 Corvette, cutting off parts until it was nearly a bare frame. The
point? To see how much the car's performance improved as it dropped weight
(into the Dumpster).
